First African American Woman in the Space Station
posted on March 16 2017
Jeanette Epps (that's Dr Epps to you!) is the first African American Woman going to Space!
She has a PhD in Aerospace Engineering, is an inventor, has worked in the CIA as an Intelligence Officer and now she's an astronaut on her way to space. Go girl.
Expedition 56 will take place in May 2018 when Dr Epps will board the International Space Station as a flight engineer and crew member. She’s the 13th woman to make this accomplishment. NASA has sent 14 black astronauts into space over the decades, but none have ever stayed aboard the ISS as a crew member.
This inspiring, passionate and committed woman has some advice:
“Anything you don’t know is going to be hard at first. But, if you stay the course, put the time and effort in, it will become seamless eventually.”
